A species-level phylogenetic supertree of marsupials

Cardillo, Marcel; Bininda-Emonds, Olaf R. P.; Boakes, Elizabeth; Purvis, A.

Description

Comparative studies require information on phylogenetic relationships, but complete species-level phylogenetic trees of large clades are difficult to produce. One solution is to combine algorithmically many small trees into a single, larger supertree. Here we present a virtually complete, species-level phylogeny of the marsupials (Mammalia: Metatheria), built by combining 158 phylogenetic estimates published since 1980, using matrix representation with parsimony. The supertree is well resolved...[Show more]
